Updated Call For Papers Triangular 2008
Post-Graduate Conference 2008 is the second annual triangular symposium organised jointly by Lancaster University, University of Cambridge and University College Dublin. The forum is co-chaired by Séamas Kelly, Lucas Introna and Matthew Jones; bringing three schools and research programmes together to debate in an intimate, relaxed and informal setting. This year’s event is hosted by the Centre for Innovation, Technology & Organisation at UCD School of Business.
Supported by the UCD School of Business Doctoral Studies Programme
Call for Papers
The call for papers invites scholars from IS and organizational studies to present preliminary research findings and/or challenging theoretical and methodological issues concerning their research. Acceptance will be competitive and numbers limited. We welcome theoretically diverse papers encompassing Institutional Theory, Ethnomethodology, Phenomenology, Theories of Practice, Actor-Network Theory, and others. Research areas will cover a spectrum of settings and organisational challenges – for example, IS in developing countries, health care, business ethics, environmental issues, software development, IS implementation and adoption, and E-government.
Significant time (1+ hour) will be allocated to each individual to present and discuss their research. We encourage you to consider this event as a forum for collective help giving and learning which requires attendees to diligently prepare and openly share their research difficulties with both faculty and peers. The faculty are committed to providing detailed feedback and also facilitate discussions around emergent themes. We expect a collage of conceptually and methodologically diverse presentations, provoking in-depth discussions in an informal and intimate setting.
Invited Speaker and Discussion
We are pleased to announce Professor Dermot Moran from UCD’s School of Philosophy as our invited speaker. Professor Moran will discuss phenomenology and re-examine its application into Organisation and IS studies. We anticipate that Professor Moran’s contribution (facilitated by Professor Lucas Introna) will bring fresh insights into Phenomenologically oriented IS and Organisational research and encourage an interesting discussion about its trajectories.
